Despite rumors having run rampant last week that Best Buy could possibly have been in the doghouse in regard to their iPad 2 sales strategy, the major retailer confirmed in a statement that such was not the case. What is instead transpiring is that Best Buy is actually fulfilling customer reservations first.
If there’s one thing that should be abundantly clear by now, it’s that you don’t mess with the fruit -- Apple, in this case. Best Buy employees are reporting that the electronics retailer is in the doghouse with Apple over some shenanigans with iPad 2 sales.
Did you hear the news? Never mind the fact that the iPad 2 is selling out all over the world -- a prominent Dell executive has predicted it’s doomed to fail. Meanwhile, an HP executive claims Apple has a “poor relationship” with its partners.
Despite Apple’s invasion of retail stores across the world, not everyone lives a comfortable driving distance from one of their holy shrines -- which is why it’s good to hear that the iPad 2 will also be available from Best Buy and Walmart when it launches at 5pm on Friday, March 11.
Following up on an AppleInsider report last Friday claiming that this week’s new iPad may available right away, a new report finds that supplies of the current iPad are extremely limited at the moment. One and one equals… two?
Only two months ago, reports were flying about warehouse club chain Costco Wholesale feeling spurned by Apple after rival Sam’s Club got the iPad and Costco didn’t. Today, it appears the relationship is completely over.
If you’ve purchased anything from one of Apple’s retail stores, you’ve no doubt seen the company’s EasyPay point of sale system, which is built on their own iPod touch hardware. Now the system is expanding its retail horizons, with a pilot program at Old Navy stores.
From rumor to fact, just like that: After weekend leaks that the iPad would soon be arriving in Wal-Mart stores, the retailer has confirmed on Monday night that it’s the real deal, and you’ll be able to buy one this Friday, October 15.
Still haven’t bought an iPad, even though Apple just made it even easier to do by stocking the tablet in more than 1,700 Target stores across the country this month? Maybe you’d rather hit your local Wal-Mart instead? It appears that you’ll be able to do exactly that soon enough.
We know that not everyone has a selection of strip malls or Apple Stores to choose from, and that's why we were excited to hear that Walmart will probably pick up the iPad for sale, allegedly by the end of the year.
